Learning About Divorce

I always loved my husband, which is why I was so surprised when he cheated on me and it was time to end our marriage. Apparently, he had been doing it for years and years, which made the discovery even more painful. I knew that I needed to get out of our marriage, which is why I turned to a skilled family and divorce attorney for help. They took me by the hand, walked me through the proceedings, and helped me to come out on top. This blog is here for anyone who might be struggling through a painful divorce. You can find your life again, and a great lawyer can help you along the way.

When Should You Go Back to Fight for Custody

If you're a parent that has already gone through a child custody case and didn't get full custody of your child or didn't get enough time awarded to you, you may wonder when can you go back to fight for custody. You can fight for custody of your child at any time, but if your situation (and your child's situation) hasn't changed, custody may not be awarded to you again. Read on for some information to help guide you when it may be a good time to fight for custody of your child.

Living Situations Changed

If your living situation was what hindered you from getting custody of your child and it has since changed, this may help your case and could give you custody or at least more visitation. If your child's living situation has changed with the other parent, this could also benefit you as well. If the other parent moved in with someone you aren't familiar with or someone that shouldn't be around your child, it may be in your child's (and your) best interest to take the other parent back to court.

Child's Behavior Changes

If your child's behavior is changing, if they are unhappy where they are living, or if you notice other changes in your child, it is a good idea to take the other parent back to court to try and get more time with your child. Not seeing both parents all of the time can cause a mental strain on a child, which may be too much for someone so small to handle. If you notice these behavioral changes, or even changes in your child's grades at school, these are all things to bring up to your attorney and to the judge.

Other Parent Moved Far Away

If the other parent moved far away from you, especially if it's outside of the guidelines of how far away they can be away from you, it's time to go back to court. Usually in a child custody case, the other parent can only move so many miles away from you. If the other parent has moved outside of this mileage, it can make it difficult for you to go see your child for your visitation time. 

If your situation or your child's situation has changed since your last child custody hearing and you feel you should be given more time with your child, talk to your attorney about going back to court. A child should be able to spend time with both of their parents. Make an appointment with your attorney today to discuss your case.
